Tuesday, November 25, 2014

PRESS RELEASE: Monday, November 24, 2014 

Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC) today announced it received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2015 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. 

“Time Warner Cable is proud to be recognized as one of the nation’s ‘Best Places to Work’ for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people for the third year in a row,” said Jerrell Moore, TWC’s Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion. "This major accomplishment is a testament to and reflection of our ongoing dedication and commitment to diversity and inclusion at Time Warner Cable.”

"In order to achieve a perfect score, a company has to show a deep and serious commitment to treating their LGBT employees fairly and equally on the job,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “We also look at whether a company is speaking out in the public square to advocate for LGBT equality here in this country and around the world. Time Warner Cable not only meets these standards, it goes above and beyond the call of duty, making its commitment to equality a fundamental aspect of its corporate values."

The 2015 CEI rated 971 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community. The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.
